i've a question about PMTU Discovery and the ACE Module.

Does the ACE Support the PMTU Discovery, what is happening when a Server has a MTU of 1500 and somewhere on the line to the client is only a smaller MTU supported?

Does the ACE react on a ICMP Packet to big, or is this Message forwarded to the server?

Since ACE fully terminates the connections, My GUESS is that ACE will fragment the large packet from server and will send multiple packets to the client.
